collective, experimental electronics from poland the artists collective palsecam formed by zenial presents an overview of their works. originating from the demo scene (with the essence being to exploit computers in such way that they create artistic visions and other various ways of expression) some of the most interesting polish electronic artists collaborate in this collective. with this release being the proof...
|wellenformreiter - die reine lehre [tonAtom.047] - wellenformreiter|
42 electronic etudes. this is the subtitle of this unbelievable work. containing 42 tracks on this (virtual) cd. 42 ? reminds me of something...? yes, sure.... and it is massive again. bigger musical forms beneath satirical miniatures. analog samples after their close encounter with the software shredder beneath electronic sounds somewhere in between of experiment, 70s-style organs and 8bit. thomas lux quite obviously delivers - in his "wellenformreiter" incarnation - a retrospective of a comple...
|aljen - drei [tonAtom.049] - aljen|
extra drei his third release on tonAtom or just three new tracks - the release titel fits both. the important thing about it is that there is a new aljen release and the good things we have got used to still remain. aljen (=aleksander jensko) has chosen to make it not easy for casual listeners (but why should he anyway) with tracks of up 11 minutes length. but the reward is that those tracks are that large and deep so that it is a pleasure to be "in" them, to enjoin their atmosphere and to press...
|Konsumprodukt - Ethics is the aesthetics of prestige [tA_D_kpeth] - konsumprodukt|
the third konsumprodukt e.p. at tonAtom. fresh, unwieldy and pleasing. 8bit plus elektrobeat, ironic and disrespectful, clearly konsumprodukt.
|aljen - ikke drikkevan [tonAtom.002] - aljen|
tonAtom is proud to present aljen and his e.p. "ikke drikkevann", a journey to the north. all tracks are reported to originate from a stone cd, found on the shores of sea bleksvatnet on the island of hinoya, vesteralen/norway.
|elektr@ - die loreley [tonAtom.003] - elektr@|
after listening to this e.p. there will be people calling for rating systems even for instrumental music. the pictures conveyed by the title track "die loreley" are too explicit, as that it could be listened to without "parental guidance". too tempting the chants of the loreley and too brutal the end of her victims. sabine "elektr@" dirksen" presents on this exclusive tonAtom-release more than 15 minutes of exciting mindmovies...
